About the instructor:
Birdie is a self-taught fiber artist from South Texas. Decades of crafting kept bringing her back to craft stores and the latch hook kits that graced their shelves. This continuous interest eventually turned into a deep love of DIY latch hooking. A couple of years into creating her own patterns, she realized traditional craft store patterns hadn’t changed in over twenty years. Thus, BYOY (Bring Your Own Yarn) Latch Hook kits were born! Birdie enjoys all types of fiber arts, playing video games, dancing, and watching movies with her husband Bob and pup, Ramona Yala.
